Author Elizabeth Edmondson joins us in this episode of CrimeFiction.FM to discuss her new book, the first in a planned six book series, A MAN OF SOME REPUTE.
Elizabeth describes the story of A MAN OF SOME REPUTE, which is set in the 1950s in an English cathedral town.
She describes the history of some of the castles in the area, calling them “living history.”
Elizabeth has a great interest in the time frame in which the book is set.
She refers to her work as Vintage Fiction, which she describes as classic stories told in a modern way.
A MAN OF SOME REPUTE is the first of a planned six book series. The next book in the series is scheduled for release in October.
From the Publisher:
Selchester Castle in 1953 sits quiet and near-empty, its corridors echoing with glories of the past.
Or so it seems to intelligence officer Hugo Hawksworth, wounded on a secret mission and now reluctantly assuming an altogether less perilous role at Selchester.
The Castle’s faded grandeur hides a web of secrets and scandals—the Earl has been missing for seven years, lost without a trace since the night he left his guests and walked out into a blizzard.
When a skeleton is uncovered beneath the flagstones of the Old Chapel, the police produce a suspect and declare the case closed.
Hugo is not convinced. With the help of the spirited Freya Wryton, the Earl’s niece, he is drawn back into active service, and the ancient town of Selchester is dragged into the intrigues and conspiracies of the Cold War era.
With a touch of Downton Abbey, a whisper of Agatha Christie and a nod to Le Carré, A Man of Some Repute is the first book in this delightfully classic and witty murder mystery series.
